Wedding Wednesday: The Solomon Wedding

The Solomon Wedding | September 2, 2017 | Photography by: Chris Jackson Photography

Adrian Solomon was hosting a cooking class at his apartment when he met Sydney Myers. The two hit it off and exchanged phone numbers at the end of the night, not knowing that their shared interest in food would be the beginning of the rest of their lives together. While on a trip to France and Italy a matter of months later, the couple was driving up a mountain and stopped to walk down a path that had a stunning view of the sea. On the opposite side of the road, Adrian had set up a camera to hopefully capture his proposal. When Sydney turned from admiring the view, she found Adrian down on one knee with a ring, asking her to be his wife. Adrian's camera ended up running out of memory, but the moment turned out to be so memorable, the couple didn't even need it.

The couple's chose the Taubman Museum to be the venue of their unique travel-themed wedding, which celebrated the diverse culture of the families involved. To represent the couple's favorite genres of food, the cuisine was served at food stations: a pasta bar, a taco bar and a steakhouse station, preceded by "lumpia," a well-known food in Filipino culture as an appetizer. During the wedding, Adrian surprised Sydney and their guests with a live performance of "Wagon Wheel," and the couple enjoyed dancing with their close friends and family throughout the evening.
